Sleepy Eye St. Mary’s was on the attack from the opening

tip Monday night, claiming a 76-65 win over the Mt. Lake Area boys basketball

team at Sleepy Eye.

“The beat

us off the

dribble all

night,” MLA

Coach Shawn

Naas said. “We didn’t get off

the bus ready to play defense

against their five-guard look.

All of their guys can hit

from the outside, but they

got it inside, too.”

St. Mary’s attempted more

three-pointers than twopointers

in the game.

The defensive difficulty

put the Wolverines in a hole.

St. Mary’s held a 10-point

halftime lead, and the Wolverines

couldn’t claw back

into the game.

“They played a pretty

basic defense against us

and we turned it over way

too much,” Naas said. “Our

inexperience at the varsity

level really showed tonight.”

Ben Grev led the Wolverines

with 16 points. Levi

Jahnke scored 12 and Levi

Stoesz added 10.

MLA was scheduled to

play at Fulda last night

(Tuesday). The Wolverines

play a girl-boy doubleheader

Friday against Southwest

Christian in Edgerton.
